Amazon-owned Eero appears to be close to asserting new routers someday quickly, as new FCC filings appeared this week for gadgets that seem to be referred to as the Eero 6 Plus and the Eero Pro 6E. That 6E branding for the Professional could point out it’ll assist Wi-Fi 6E, that means it will possibly make the most of 6GHz spectrum for sooner connections.
Router makers have slowly been introducing Wi-Fi 6E-capable mesh routers, although some have been fairly costly, equivalent to this $1,500 Orbi system from Netgear and Linksys’ $1,200 possibility. Whereas we don’t understand how a lot Eero’s 6E-capable system could price, it could be extra inexpensive than these choices, provided that a 3-pack for the Eero 6 Professional launched at $599.
The brand new router names present up on labels Eero included within the filings. On the labels, the Eero 6 Plus has a model number of R010001, whereas the Eero Professional 6E’s model number is S010001 — each of which didn’t present up as presently out there gadgets once I googled them. The brand new names recommend these routers may be extra iterative upgrades or get slotted in alongside the presently out there Eero 6 and Eero Professional 6.
Right here’s the label for the Eero 6 Plus.
And the one for the Eero Professional 6E.
Amazon and Eero didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
